    Hi there, I'm Charlie. I'm in my first year of A-levels and am currently studying Maths, Further Maths and Physics.

    I hope to go to either Cambridge, Warwick or Durham to read Mathematics.
    I am planning to do STEP next year and hope to achieve a distinction in the 2nd and 3rd papers.

    My GCSE's are not the best but i did achieve A* grades in the subjects that are relevant to the subjects that I'm studying and my degree choice.
    My GCSE's are as follows:

    Maths: 9
    Physics: A*
    Chemistry: A
    Biology: A
    Music: A
    Geography: A
    PSHE: A
    Further Maths: A
    DT: B
    French: B
    English Literature: 6
    English Language: 5

    I'm retaking my Language as something went wrong that day.
    Ignore my further maths grade as something went horribly wrong on that day.

    Don't put yourself down, your GCSEs are amazing! A 9 in maths, I can only dream lol. It took me more than enough mental breakdowns to get an 8

    Best of luck! I'm sure you do great. What do you want to do post-uni?
